    Experimenting with a self-made semi-silent cap on a roarer burner head. Stove is a 2pt Høvik Verk “Standard” brass tank stove. Interesting flame pattern, don’t you think?

    Question for the learned community of kero-stove collectors:
    -Does anyone have own experiences with machining or manufacturing flame ring /flame spreader variations to fit a standard roarer burner?
    -What may be read from the flame pattern above?
    -Will the red hot steel cap eventually cause an "under-burn" or inside-cap combustion, defeating the purpose?

    (The green light is not for dramatic effect, but merely from a tiny LED diode on a power tool charger in the workshop, which showed up really well when I turned off the lights to take the flame shots)

    I was almost sad when this burner on a recently acquired Svea Duplex No3 started to burn blue.

    IMG_20210322_210633.jpg My Primus no. 210 (stamped 1915) in front of my igloo I built this weekend. Last night I slept there amazingly well - fresh & cool air can make wonders.

    Bad weather today, and spend some time in the garage. Two classical swedes burning side by side... 20210404_145056.jpg 20210404_145311.jpg 20210404_145322.jpg

    knock off Trangia (would have preferred a real one but you can only buy it as a set with saucepans from shops in Australia), coz it burns metho the flame is too hard to see in daylight

    The first flames with my new Svea No.1 at the blue hour in the woods.
    To make it work again required little effort just pump leather lubrication and burner cleaning.

    IMG_20210417_202453325.jpg Is that green flame heated up copper oxide?

    No one commented on my box-less Coleman box-stove design that I posted here a few months ago :-k . Sob. I'm crying in my beer, er milk.

    This design, in my humble opinion, is so delightful in that I can brew coffee, which boils over every time when I make breakfast on a camping trip, and yet there's no box or "suitcase" to get dirtied with coffee or with bacon grease or other food splatters.

    In any case, this flame was produced by a homemade fuel-air mixing tube made of copper and a burner made of perforated sheet steel (I think the missing original primary burner went to another DIY stove project).

    Thanks for reposting. I missed this first time around.
    I love all DIY stove projects and I particularly like the perforated plate burner. I have a few ideas brewing! Thank you.

    You are most kind. You're most welcome. Please share, at your soonest opportunity, whichever ideas, or their results, that you have brewing.

    Here's a most unusual flame shot. It was produced by a wax-powered stove. Indeed: wax. As in candle wax.

    In this DIY project, a 9-volt-battery-powered fan delivers air to the combustion chamber. Still, the flame is well below optimal in terms of efficiency.

    Nevertheless, I used and enjoyed this stove on several multi-day backpacking–fishing excursions.

    Nice to see your (and everyone else's) experiments with heat producing devices. I, too, must have missed your original "box-less Coleman" post. It's certainly a minimalist and clever design, especially the homemade manifold and burner.
